OVERVIEW: The JP Morgan Chase Foundation supports local, regional, and national disease organizations.
IP TAKE: This corporate funder focuses its disease-related funding on a variety of issues including research, direct care, support and prevention.
PROFILE: The Global Philanthropy arm of the massive financial services firm JPMorgan Chase is motivated by a sense of the company’s “fundamental responsibility to help our clients and our communities navigate a complex global economy and address their economic and social challenges.” The firm has given away hundreds of millions of dollars to nonprofits worldwide in recent years, with a four-pronged focus on Workforce Readiness, Financial Capability, Small Business Expansion, and Community Development.
Although the JPMorgan Chase Foundation does not have a grantmaking program dedicated to diseases, its tax filings show an interest in this area. For example, past grantees include organizations such as Breast Cancer Prevention Partners and the Huntington’s Disease Society of America.
Grant amounts generally range from $1,000 to $100,000. The foundation limits its grantmaking to geographic regions of the world in which it has a business and employee presence.
The JPMorgan Chase Foundation does not accept or review unsolicited letters of inquiry or grant proposals.
